Ringo Starr donates $100000 to charity for Las Vegas shooting victims; pays tribute to Tom Petty

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

This past Friday, Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band kicked off an eight-show Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, and the ex-Beatles drummer dedicated the show to the victims of the recent horrific mass shooting that took place in the city. He also made a personal donation the day before.

On Thursday, Starr and wife Barbara Bach donated $100,000 via their Lotus Foundation charity to the Nevada Resort Association’s just-launched Vegas Strong Fund, which supports the shooting victims and their families.

Matching the Starrs’ donation was Caesars Entertainment President and CEO Mark Frissora, whose company owns the Planet Hollywood resort. The $200,000 is part of a total of $2 million that Caesars Entertainment has contributed to the fund.
